This is a halfblind dovetailed vallet made of cherry and maple. I used tempered hardboard for the drawer runners. Simple miter joints for the drawers. I just turned the knobs an hour ago. Minwax poly for the case. Bees wax for the knobs. I may make a removable upper till or flock the top. Not sure yet. The drawer faces were cut from the same pice as the front to create a consistent grain pattern. I may also add a maple detail around the drawers to close the gaps some.

That’s plainly flawless work. Awesome job on the dovetail.
